The top-down action in Hotline Miami is absolutely brutal - a sort of satire of modern games. It also includes stealth and a killer soundtrack. The game uses the unreliable narrator trope, so you can't even trust your character.

Fun Fact: Developer Jonatan Söderström has been known to assist those pirating Hotline Miami from the Pirate Bay, as he would rather people not play a broken version of the game, even if they stole it.
